These are rhetorical questions for myself but input is always welcome. Thanks everyone who has replied thus far.
If the demand for used bikes drops by the time you get the 2200, your loss will be greater than what you predict. Used bikes are valued high right now and no one knows when / if they will drop back to pre covid levels.
